How it works
Just tell us which ticket numbers you want to sell online and we will do the rest (keep the tickets safe because you will need the stubs for the draw). Winners claim by showing their ticket on their mobile phone. The order number (shown in the image above) allows you to verify the ticket and to look up their contact details if they don’t claim on the day.

Thousands of not-for-profit organisations use Stripe for all their card processing needs.
Please note that when applying for a Stripe account the application processing software may automatically deny your application if it contains the words “raffle” or “lottery” because unlicenced raffles are illegal and pose a commercial risk to Stripe. You may prefer to use the phrase “Donations and other legal fundraising activity in the UK” so that you application is processed on its merits and not binned by software. If you would like to talk about this or other inequities in the current financial system feel free to call James on 07989 381331. I am here to help.
